In this episode of Entrepreneurs For Good, I speak with Maria Radyati, founding director of the Centre for Entrepreneurship, Change, and Third Sector at Trisakti University in Jakarta about her work teaching sustainability in Indonesia.
One of the most entrepreneurial academics I have met in a long time, through my discussion with her, we dive into her belief that the best way to teach business leaders, current and future, to be more sustainable is through practical experience.
Experience that generates genuine connection to the challenges, but at the same time provides focus and tangibility to the development of solutions.
About the Entrepreneurs For Good Series:
Through this series, we speak with Asia based entrepreneurs whose mission it is to bring solutions to the environmental, social, and economic challenges that are faced within the region to learn more about their vision, the opportunities they see, and challenges that they have had to overcome.
It is a series that we hope will not only engage and inspire you, but catalyze you and your organizations into action. To identify a challenge that is tangible, and build a business model (profit or non) that brings a solution to the market
